Looks like the groundhog isn't the hottest animal in Punxsutawney this year.
Within a few days we should know if there is a new typical whitetail atop of the Pennsylvania Record books. That's the 60 days after Dave Altman downed a 17-pointer on the second day of rifle season in the Keystone State.
According to Bowhunting.com, the buck is green scored at 203 inches, which would smash the current record of 189 inches, which was set in 1943.
Altman shot the buck in Jefferson County at 150 yards with his new Ruger M77 .300 Winchester. We'll let you know if this gets the official treatment. –Brian McClintock
